“Perfect hideaway”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have been in Istria for the First Time - and it will not be the last visit. The apartment was perfect (as described) and the warm welcome of the owners let us immediately feel at home.
The location of the apartment is directly in the center of Istria - the perfect origin to explore whole Istria.
Thanks a lot to Andrijana und Vanja for the many recommendations where to go and where to have a nice dinner - and thanks a lot from the girls for the daily fresh baked cake :-).
See you soon ....

“What a gem!!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in late June this year and it was a joy from beginning to end. The accommodation itself is so well done - lovely and rustic but with a modern twist and the infinity pool is beautiful, in a lovely quiet setting.
The breakfast provided by Adrijana is great, lots of local treats and some fresh baking each day which she left out for us to have as a welcome afternoon snack!
The accommodation is perfectly located for exploring the quirky and beautiful hilltop villages and getting a real sense of Istria's interior (though the coast is also only about a 40min drive depending on where you want to go) There are supermarkets and restaurants a short drive away. The accommodation had kitchen facilities and lovely eating areas outside so you could also cook for yourselves if you didn't fancy going out.
Adrijiana was welcoming, helpful and friendly throughout our stay and if you are looking at staying anywhere in this area - there is no competition - it has to be here!

“Wonderful rural property with very welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Pruga Apartments are set in an idyllic rural location in central Istria, however you are only a 30-45 minute drive away from the resorts of Rovinj, Porec and Rabac and the city of Pula.

The owners Andrijana and Vanja are wonderful hosts who are very accommodating and speak perfect English. They are very knowledgeable about Istria and made some great recommendations of places to visit. Andrijana's breakfasts (with freshly baked cakes) are also a wonderful treat!

The accommodation is in a converted barn which has been renovated to a very high standard and contains all the mod cons you would expect for a self catering apartment (including excellent free wi-fi).

The extensive open space around the property - including a pool and covered eating area - is great to explore and safe for children to play in.

We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this property and hope to make a return visit in future.

“Stunningly beautiful apartment with lovely owners and great food!”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Woke up every morning to a great selection of good quality food and home baked treats, served by the pool under an elegantly shaded canopy.
Couldn't be a better way to start the day exploring the rural winding countryside, or simply reading by the pool.

The owners were not only kind and generous, but very helpful with great recommendations. The way the have designed the interior of the studio apartment is of a high quality with a beautiful attention to detail.

We couldn't recommend this place more!
